nothing special

i wanted to write something more positive or negative but couldn't master the words. neither much flavour nor blandness about the food yet the service was friendly and fast. better places to visit in Boston.

I went for lunch with my son. We ordered quesadillas. My pulled pork quesadilla was so watery I left the soggy tortilla in the dish and only ate the filling. My son's chicken quesadilla was bland, cold and the cheese wasn't melted. The only good food on our table was the complementary chips and salsa. Since there were only about... More

I stumbled upon Fajitas & Ritas after a show at the Boston Opera House. I didn't have any set expectations but thought I would give it a whirl. I absolutely loved it! The warm chips before my meal were absolutely fabulous, and the drinks were great (but a little pricey). I got a quesadilla and it was delicious! The food... More

We walked here from our hotel after seeing the ad in their brochure. We were at first a little disappointed by the lack of attention from the hostess. She seemed to be overwhelmed by the fact that there were 3-4 groups waiting for tables. She had a hard time figuring out how best to get people seated. Luckily, we stuck... More

I stopped by before catching a Shakespeare play at the nearby Suffolk U. theater. Because I didn't have a lot of time I decided on a simple location, and this turned out just right, Service was quick, I had a bbq pork quesadilla that hit the spot without filling me up to much, and the price was right.

I ordered the scallop tostada salad and my daughter had the chicken fajitas; reasonable prices and good service. The food was okay, but the small cozy restaurant and time with family and laughing with strangers is better.

Decent food at a recent price. Large portions. On a nice quaint street. Seats by the window are good. Tables which are deep in are quite crappy. I won't eat here unless I get a table by the window.

......during a five day trip to Boston, so we must have enjoyed it the first time. The chips and salsa were OK - chips being charred and flavorsome but I suspect the salsa was tinned tomato based. The shrimp & scallop fajitas were good enough compared to many we've had in other similar restaurants. We enjoyed the margaritas although the... More

The atmosphere here was great and the food is very good indeed. Veronica our waitress soothed us after our tiring journey in from New York and both the fajita's and the Rita margarita's were to enjoy and remember

This place is great, the margaritas and steak fajitas are yummy. Not a big fan of their burritos but its a convenient and reasonably priced location. And they're kid freindly enviornment.
